Championship Sack Race Hots Up: Sven Odds On To Go Before Mclaren

With the Championship season set to kick off this weekend, Hills are offering a brand new market on the Manager Sack Race. The Championship is home to a number of high profile managers this year and the market is expected to be incredibly competitive with Coventry manager, Andy Thorn, the 6/1 favourite to be the first manager to leave his club. Keith Millen and Sean Dyche round off the top three at 7/1. With two former England managers plying their trade in the division, Hills offer 14/1 that Steve McLaren is the first manager to go, while Sven Goran Eriksson is 16/1 although Sven is 8/11 to be out of a job before the Wally with the Brolly.

“This year’s Championship is expected to be one of the closest ever with a number of high profile managers in charge of high profile clubs. Not all of them will be able to live up to expectations and the managers’ sack race could potentially be quite a volatile market,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

First Championship manager to leave his job: 6/1 Andy Thorn; 7/1 Keith Millen; 7/1 Sean Dyche; 8/1 Nigel Clough; 9/1 Chris Hughton; 9/1 Ian Holloway; 10/1 Sean O’Driscoll; 10/1 Steve Cotterill; 12/1 Tony Mowbray; 14/1 Steve McLaren; 16/1 Darren Ferguson; 16/1 Sven Goran Eriksson; 16/1 Simon Grayson; 16/1 Dougie Freedman; 16/1 Eddie Howe; 16/1 Paul Jewell; 20/1 Nigel Pearson; 20/1 Brian McDermott; 20/1 Keith Hill; 20/1 Nigel Adkins; 20/1 Sam Allardyce; 20/1 Gus Poyet; 20/1 Kenny Jackett; 20/1 Malky Mackay

Heavy Gamble On Bluebird To Become A Hammer

Dave Jones has been cut from 10/1 to 6/4 to be the new West Ham boss, by William Hill. He has been the subject of a massive gamble over the space of an hour and has pushed other contenders such as Chris Hughton and Sam Allardyce out to 10/3 and 4/1 respectively.

“Dave Jones has gone from relative outsider to frontrunner in the space of 20 minutes and the gamble would suggest that he is, as reported, the number one target to replace Avram Grant,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Next Permanent West Ham Manager (William Hill Odds): 6/4 Dave Jones; 10/3 Chris Hughton; 4/1 Sam Allardyce; 9/1 Alex McLeish; 14/1 Neil Warnock; 14/1 Martin O’Neill; 14/1 Paul Lambert; 14/1 Chris Coleman; 16/1 Kevin Keen; 16/1 Ian Holloway; 16/1 Malky MacKay; 20/1 BAR

England 6/4 To Win World Cup Bid


AFTER receiving a positive report from FIFA inspectors, England are 6/4 second favourites with William Hill to win the bid to stage the 2018 World Cup.
Russia are currently 10/11 favourites with Hills, but haven’t fared so positively in the reports, while Spain and Portugal’s joint bid did well and is 7/2 third favourite, with Holland/Belgium’s bid the 50/1 outsiders.
‘With rumours and counter-rumours swirling around this has become a very volatile market, but England’s positive report will have calmed some of the nerves which seem to have been engulfing their bid team’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

6/1 Megson To Be Last Prem Boss To Go This Season


William Hill have opened a book on how many more Premier League managers will follow Gary Megson out of their psitions this season – and offer 6/1 that he will be the last to go. ‘With the January transfer window looming up, clubs may consider that there is little point switching managers afterwards, so if we don’t see more departures within the next few weeks that may just be it for the season. However, chairmen are also capable of coming up with different reasons for disposing of out of favour managers, so I suspect we’ll take plenty of money at 20/1 for another four or more to go – particularly as several clubs appear to have severe financial problems.’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

0 6/1
1 11/10
2 7/4
3 7/1
4+ 20/1


PAUL JEWELL has been backed down to favouritism to become the next Bolton manager with William Hill who now make him an 11/4 shot from an opening 5/1 to get the job full-time and also offer: 9/2 Peter Reid; 5/1 Mark Hughes; 7/1 Darren Ferguson; 10/1 Alan Curbishley; Gary Speed; 12/1 Owen Coyle; 14/1 Steve Coppell; 16/1 Iain Dowie; Alan Irvine; Gareth Southgate. ‘As with most situations of this nature, this has been a volatile market early on, but Jewell and Reid have both come in for significant support as the day has gone on’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Jeffries Gamble Underway As Burley Looks Doomed

Early ‘Killie-cash’ gamble on Jeffries as:

HAVING OFFERED 7/4 that Scotland boss George Burley would lose his job before the qualifiers for the next Euro tournament get underway, William Hill closed the book once it became obvious that he is likely to be sacked before the end of the week.
And punters have already poured cash on Kilmarnock manager Jim Jeffries succeeding Burley, forcing his odds down from an opening 20/1 to 5/1 joint favourite, along with Craig Levein and Walter Smith. Hills also offer 6/1 Gary McAllister; 7/1 Owen Coyle; 8/1 Billy Davies; 10/1 Darren Ferguson; Joe Jordan 12/1 Kenny Dalglish; Mark McGhee.
‘This is likely to be a very volatile market in the early stages, but the very fact that we are already seeing plenty of interest in Burley’s successor pretty much guarantees that he won’t be seeing the week out’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
